    are there any 100-300yd benchrest stocks that are proven for less than 500$ ? I can refinish damaged ones or 2nds.

    doc gordon......I bought a Kelbly KLP(Kelbly Low Profile) unfinished(under $500), and did the "body work" and had it painted,then bedded the action myself. I'm very happy with the KLP. Good luck.

    Tom Meredith can get you into a stock for that price. Many shooters use this stock, and it works well.

    I think the McMillan Edge stocks are hard to beat for the price, especially the HV stocks. They can be found for $350 brand new and do not need bodywork, paint, or a buttplate.

    I got this one. Havn't got the barrel chambered yet to put in it, but it looks very solid and has allot of adjustment.

    Looking at the PRT stocks looks like they would work nicely within your means.

    What does $425 get a guy? A blank inlet and no finish? I wouldn't mind having one of those!

    Ryan Pierce with Piercision Rifles makes some very very nice stock. $425 for basic inletted stock. Check him out. Great guy to deal with.

    I believe that the OP asked about 1-300 yard benchrest. If he meant sanctioned center fire match shooting, there are stock shape, and weight limits that would not allow the stocks that some of you have posted about.

    So I have been watching for a suitable stock for my savage to start F class and keep missing the ones I see for sale. I keep looking
    at the CNC in the shop and wonder is there a niche market here? what features would be most important on a entry level bench stock? The chance to do something besides more cabinet and stair parts is intriguing. If I only ran small runs when the machine was idle costs could be controlled.

    Boyd, you are right. doc disreguard my post. DCRYDER and 82boy's suggestions are more suitable for you for sanctioned shoots, if that is what the case may be.
